In the Unclutterer Forum, there is an amazing challenge going on that I’ve greatly enjoyed following. Unclutterer reader and Forum member EternalVoyageur started the A Thing a Day Challenge to track daily uncluttering efforts in a fun way.
In less than two months, there are more than 400 posts in the discussion with 59 people already participating in the ATAD Challenge.
An explanation about the challenge from EternalVoyageur:
The challenge is about getting rid of one object a day, for … a month? A year? It’s up to you how long you want your challenge to last.
Whether you give away, trash or donate the object is immaterial, but it must be gone from your life and space. Putting it into storage doesn’t count; though you are allowed to, say, collect the things in a box to donate them at the end of the month.
Oh, and you’re also allowed to cheat and fill your quota ahead of time, like throwing out 7 things on Monday, making that a week’s worth of ATAD.
By telling us on here what you got rid of today will not only help with the accountability issues, you’ll also help others rethink their possessions (He got rid of his xyz? Come to think of it, do I really need mine?)
